ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AND APPRECIATION OF TOWERING SUPPORT

Every so often it is fitting to reflect on achievements, and acknowledge those individuals, businesses, bodies and groups, who have and are continuing to contribute their support for the preservation of the Jimna Fire Tower. The Jimna Fire Tower Action Group (JFTAG), is deeply touched by the passion demonstrated by the many individuals who have emailed messages of support, but in thanking you all very much, it must be emphasised that the job is far from completed. The best possible way that each and every member of our ever-growing supporter base can help at this point in time, is to recruit new supporters by spreading the word amongst family, at the office or workplace, or better still, organise a few friends, pack a picnic lunch and treat them to a day in the great outdoors at Jimna.

JFTAG acknowledges Forestry Plantations Queensland (FPQ) for their continued maintenance of the tower site. Recent slashing and a little rain has produced a green cover of grass, which more appropriately portrays the site as a picnic spot unequalled in beauty and with unparalleled views. To the Kilcoy Shire Council for their cooperation and assistance in not only recognising the Jimna Fire Tower in the revised edition of the Kilcoy Shire Tourist Guide, but also more accurately describing the current status of the campaign to preserve it.

To Tourism Queensland through Brisbane Marketing, which is a partner in the development of tourism in South East Queensland Country, for including the Jimna Fire Tower on it’s mailing list and allowing JFTAG to submit feedback to their Destination Management Plan, thereby registering the Jimna Fire Tower on the Queensland tourism agenda. Thank you also to the Conondale Range Committee for donating their wonderful publication, “Walking On The Wilder Side In The Conondales”, which is a graphic illustration of the campaign to “preserve the Conondales”, it’s subsequent success, and it’s connection with the Jimna Ranges and Tourist attractions, such as the Peach Trees Camping Area and the Jimna Fire Tower.

Last but not least a big thank you to Fantastic Reproductions of Caboolture, for their efforts over and above the call of duty, in producing  the Jimna Walking Track Maps, which will be available at the Jimna Visitor Information Centre for the first of the BIG WALKS FOR JIMNA FIRE TOWER on Easter Sunday.
